How do you experience a daily revival with God?
Up until that point, I hadn’t even considered that I could really have a daily revival with the Lord.
In the midst of a storm.
In the drugdery of the day to day.
When you may be unhappy with your current season or wondering,
“Is anything going to go right in my life?”
As I thought about this, I thought about my time with God.
This is an opportunity to have a daily revival with Him.
As Merriam dictionary mentioned, that very word revival is usually used in the context of an event or a specific time or season in the life of the body of Christ or a local church.
Can I suggest to you that you don’t need anyone else to enjoy a daily revival with Him?
Don’t get me wrong.
There is something to be said when the people of God get together in one place and we experience revival corporately.
Can you imagine how much more powerful this would be if each person was experiencing their own personal daily revival with Him and then came together?!
What a beautiful thought to consider that we can experience personal revival with our Father every day of our lives.
As I thought about this some more,
I came up with the Holy Spirit showed me 3 ways to experience a daily revival with the Lord.
- Every day, in your quiet time with the Lord, and as you go about your day, make it a practice to repent. This keeps your heart open and free before the Lord. (When my heart is continually cleansed before God, meaning I confess sin as soon as it happens, I feel so free and my heart is full and exploding, which to me is revival!)
- Find opportunities to express gratitude. Try making a list every day of 3-5 different things to thank God for. (It will make it very hard for you to focus on all the things you feel aren’t going right in your life.)
- Worship Him. This will look different for every person, but find a song or several to sing to Him daily that expresses your heart. There is something about worship that refereshes, renews and revives your spirit and positions you to hear from the Lord in a different way.
So the next time someone says to you, “When was the last time you’ve been to a revival?” or “I need a revival“, you can tell them confidently,
I have a daily revival with the Lord.
And mean it!
Here’s my personal worship playlist on YouTube that I add to all the time.
